Worley scores Adnoc LNG gig in UAE

Australian engineering company Worley has secured a contract from a unit of UAE’s Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. for FEED work on two trains at the Das Island LNG export plant.

The front-end engineering design contract includes the rejuvenation of the first two units at the 6 mtpa facility on Das Island located some 160 km off the coast of Abu Dhabi, according to Adnoc.

In addition, the project looks to extend the lives of the two liquefaction trains but also boost efficiency. Following the FEED and depending on the results, Worley should also win the EPC contract.

The plant, operated by Adnoc LNG, consists of three trains. It launched the first two units back in 1977, followed by the third in 1994.

Moreover, Adnoc LNG, in which the UAE giant owns 70 percent, has signed multi-year supply agreements with Total and Vitol in September last year as the producer looks to further expand its scope.

Prior to 2019, about 90 percent of Das Island volumes landed in Japan, the world’s largest LNG importer.

However, since then the LNG producer has signed several deals and now supplies the fuel to a range of clients, and in more than eight countries across Asia.

Besides Adnoc, the LNG firms’ shareholders include Mitsui & Co (15%), BP (10%), and Total (5%).
